Join Us in Celebrating Semana Santa
In honor of Easter, we’re rolling out a host of special activities for the whole family from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday – known in Mexico as Semana Santa (Holy Week).We invite you to explore our award-winning resort and partake in some special events as we celebrate this time-honored holiday. Starting on Palm Sunday, March 20 (which also happens to be the Spring Equinox) through Easter Sunday, March 27, here’s what we have on tap for the whole family:
Throughout the week, Isla Contoy – our beautiful restaurant located under the huge palapa by the sea – will be highlighting an array of fresh seafood. Topping the list will be aguachile, a typical dish made with shrimp or scallops, submerged in lime juice, chili, cilantro and onion; delicious ceviche created with your choice of shrimp, calamari, tuna or scallops marinated in fresh lime; tasty tostadas and tacos, including shrimp al pastor and octopus, and a fully stocked raw bar. Of course, we will also be offering fresh fish and lobster, made to order!
March 25 – 27 our young guests can explore our state-of-the-art Coral KidZ Club,where they will be given a passport and invited to participate in arts-and-crafts, cooking and dance classes, piñata-making and more. For kids ages 3-5, there’s an area devoted to imagination and learning where toddlers can choose their own path – city, park or jungle.
The cityscape features – among other things – a Mexican-style home, fire station; construction zone; a mercado and play kitchen. Next door, the Jungle room offers a quiet zone deep in the “forest” where they can curl up in a nook with a book. They’ll also be making candy baskets and decorating eggs, which will be used in a resort-wide egg hunt on Easter Sunday. Older children will enjoy computer activities, table games and even night camping!
March 27, Easter Sunday, you’re invited to indulge in our highly acclaimed Viña del Mar’s lavish brunch, where you’ll find a delectable array of items, from fresh fruit to a variety of cheeses, a bagel and lox station, tasty bakery items, yogurts, eggs, pancakes,waffles and more. Not to be missed Mexican favorites include chilaquiles, tostadas, quesadillas, refried beans and other local staples. A Bloody Mary station and Mimosas offer the perfect complement to your brunch.
Easter Sunday at 3 p.m. children will delight in an Easter egg hunt throughout the resort, topped off by a live show at the KidZ Club Theater, where prizes will be given out.
We invite you to visit during Semana Santa. It’s the perfect place to spend your Easter vacation!
